Description 

Across from King Otto's Castle is this small crag with a handful of routes including the straight-in crack of The Falcon (5.10b) and the excellent stemming corner of The Condor (5.12a).

Despite it's relatively close location to the campground proper this can actually be a good place to get away from the crowds and sample some fun routes.


Getting There 

More or less directly south of and across the road from King Otto's Castle. A large inverted "V" is a prominent landmark. Approach time is about 10 minutes from parking near King Otto's Castle.

Start 50' down and left from The Falcon, a striking thin crack/corner system. Climb up a ramp to a vertical crack, then cut right to an arete passing four bolts. Bolted anchor/rap on top.This route is better than it's neighbor to the left due to the arete section up high, but both are fun and easily done as they both share the same anchor.When in the area make sure to check out some of the fine crack routes nearby- The Falcon and The Condor are both high quality lines and The Wonder Bluffs fo...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
